Overview

The planet Venus, after the terraformers finished work and life on Earth ended, was a hell of aggressive mutations, the land and seas turgid with ragingly lethal lifeforms. Humankind lives in domed undersea Keeps--and only the mercenary naval troops called Free Companies venture to the surface to wage the Keeps' proxy wars.

Ensign Brainard and his men, their flitterboat wrecked by a dreadnought's main-gun salvo, are about to face the worst enemy on the planet--The Jungle.

Written in the universe created by Henry Kuttner in Clash By Night.

Meet the Author

David Drake lives in Pittsboro, North Carolina.


David Drake (born 1945) sold his first story (a fantasy) at age 20. His undergraduate majors at the University of Iowa were history (with honors) and Latin (BA, 1967). He uses his training in both subjects extensively in his fiction.

David entered Duke Law School in 1967 and graduated five years later (JD, 1972). The delay was caused by his being drafted into the US Army. He served in 1970 as an enlisted interrogator with the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, the Blackhorse, in Viet Nam and Cambodia. He has used his legal and particularly his military experiences extensively in his fiction also.

David practiced law for eight years; drove a city bus for one year; and has been a full-time freelance writer since 1981, writing such novels as Out of the Waters and Monsters of the Earth. He reads and travels extensively.
